First there was all the Christmas parties. Then we started the birthday parties. After Mom's party on Thursday, there was the next birthday party - GBN2 turned five years old on Friday. They started off with a skating party in the early afternoon followed by a nap before the pizza and presents. The nap was a good idea. It seems like one party after another lately makes for tired little girls. But I loved the way GBN2 blew out her candles - classy.
